When my parents passed away recently I made many fascinating discoveries within boxes that had been shuffled around for 3 and in some cases 4 generations.  

The treasures included:

  • Albums of antique family photos dating back to the civil war,
  • Customer letters my grandma saved when she worked at Montgomery Ward in the 1930s
  • My Great Great Grandmother’s scrapbook full of clippings dating back to the 1850s
  • Thousands of letters including every letter exchanged by my grandparents during WWII
  • So much more

In the process of going through these items I started to learn more about my family’s history.  

I ran with it and started digging into genealogical research for the first time.

I built this site as a way to organize what I found in the boxes and while doing research.

Along the way it occurred to me that I’m not the only one in this situation and maybe others could use a similar site.

I’m starting with a round of private beta testers but you can play around with a demo site here.  You can add photos, materials,
